I am a friend or relative of a resident

This facility specializes in those with Alzheimer's, and was where my grandma stayed for several years at the end of her life. Prior to that she had stayed an Assisted living facility, but Collwood was a much better fit for her and the people there took great care of her. Everything is very clean and they have lots of activities. Whenever we visited we were treated like special guests in their home. The staff are very helpful, willing to drop everything to help you find a room or get a cup of coffee even. My grandma got to keep some of her own furniture and wall decorations in her room along with her roommates things and so it felt very homey in the room, not institutional. This place is great, you walk in and you immediately get a happy up-beat feeling from the staff. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 star is that it is really not in a great part of town, not that it mattered to grandma because she was not to leave unassisted, but parking can be a little dicey.

I visited this facility

We happened to be in the San Diego and decided to stop in to see Collwood Terrace assisted living facility while searching for a place for our aunt to live in the area. The outside area resembled a nicely designed condo building. There was plenty of fresh greenery to enjoy around the facility. The interior design seemed easy to navigate and each room had beautiful views, which we really liked. There seemed to be plenty of fresh air and light all around The communal rooms were quite pleasant and well appointed for any kind of social activity. Because the weather is so mild in San Diego, the residents may enjoy walks along the beach and spend time outdoors just about any time of the year. The staff often takes residents on many outings into San Diego's vibrant community to enjoy all that it has to offer. From sight seeing to nature walks and cultural events, San Diego is a great place to live. The staff appeared to accommodate all levels of ambulation. The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible, much of which takes place outdoors. They also offer yoga and aerobics classes, often held outdoors. The dining areas offered great food that looked and smelled delicious. The menus included food options for all kinds of diets. Healthy snacks are offered all day and into the evening, and whenever requested. Private rooms featured nice decorations and comfortable furniture, all with nice views to enjoy and natural light and fresh air. The seniors appeared very content here, with just the amount of care and attention they needed at all times.
